Mass Readings for March 8, 2009
The Old Testament reading for today always puts a smile on my face. I know it sounds incongruous, I mean after all, Abraham has been commanded by God to sacrifice his only son. Let me explain myself. The picture used for this post was drawn by Stat Boy during his kindergarten year. It is a picture of the Old Testament reading. You may recognize Abraham with his knife poised over his son lying on the bundle of wood. What causes the mirth, for me, are the expressions on Abraham's and Isaac's faces. Their faces display huge smiles and that just cracks me up. For the rest of my life, that biblical reading will always be associated with the sweet and innocent drawing by my sweet and innocent little boy.
